cannot reproduce -- what characters are causing this? I will
investigate, although comment is basically just a helper to be
used by people importing max patches (try doing so without...)

there are two problems:
1. displaing non-ascii characters in object boxes, including
native Pd comments --
one thing to try is modifying the procedures pdtk_text_new and
pdtk_text_set in the pd.tk file, replacing "-text $text" there
with "-text [encoding convertfrom cp1251 $text]"
2. getting those characters into object boxes --
there is no other reliable way, currently, than typing them
directly into a .pd file in a text editor outside of Pd.
